This switch looks like a computer DVI switch. Although I am not sure that AVSers have tried this specific switch, we have tried switches like this and they don't work. There are a couple of issues that render computer DVI switches from working with A/V equipment. It'd be nice to only have to pay $90 for a DVI switch but the base price is actually closer to $200.
Right now, there is a switch from Gefen - 2 into 1 or 4 into 1 that you can get less expensively at places other than Gefen (e.g., kvmgalore.com). The problem with these switches is that the remote control codes were not researched and so they interfere with other equipment. Gefen is reportedly working on a fix.
Pacific Cable has announced a switch but no one has seen one yet. Not sure when theirs will actually show up.
The Perfect Vision claimed Key Digital had an inexpensive DVI switch but they had nothing on their website and a direct query to them resulted in a note that said that they had the specs for one but wouldn't be shipping until September.
Lindy has a switch (I tried the prototype and it worked well) that should be shipping in February. This switch is the most reasonably priced of the bunch but it does not have remote control (they are working on a remote control model).
